I am a stay at home mom.  I have a 3 yo and a 6 mo old.  I am having a difficult time right now because their naps are not at the same time.  I can't figure out how to get my 3 yo to sleep when my baby is not ready for a nap.  My 3 yo still nurses at nap and bedtime. 

Suggestions?

 

The 6 mo old naps at 10, 2 or 3 and sometimes at 6 p.m.

She usually naps around 1:30 but I don't want her napping after 3:00 because of going to bed at night.

Oh wow!  That is quite a gap.  Hmm, how long does the 3 year old nap for and how long is the 10 am nap for your baby?  I'm trying to fix a time line in my head!  lol.gif

My 3 yr old will nap for at least an hour in ideal circumstances.  My 6 mo old will also nap about an hour.  They both nap longer when I am laying there with them.  Especially the 6 mo old.  He will occasionally stir and then nurse back to sleep.  I've enjoyed a family bed but I don't particularly want it until they are teens.
